The panel will include four members from the drug, biotechnology, and medical device industries and four from academic institutions. Of the other five, one will be from an organization representing healthcare consumers and another must be a practicing healthcare professional, HHS said. The group, to be called the National Biodefense Science Board, was authorized by the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act, passed last December. It will give advice about trends, challenges, and opportunities in the field and make recommendations about research and development, according to an HHS news release issued yesterday.
